The One that's Getting Away

PostSat May 18, 2013 7:08 am

I've had a standing agreement with a buddy from high school that as soon as he was finished with his manual '98 V70 T5, I would take it off his hands.

That day has come. And naturally I'm in no position to add an extra car to the fleet. Juggling two with just street parking in Chicago is hard enough, let alone tossing in a station wagon.

Pisses me off, too, because his dad bought it new and they're maintenance freaks.

If it's any condolence, not being able to drive across the country and buy a well cared for manual Volvo wagon hurts me, too.
